How do I register my child for school?

If you are new to our area and need to register for school, you can find out more information on our Registration Information page . You can also visit the school office. We will be happy to help you fill out the necessary paperwork for registration. When you come, please be sure to bring the following documents with you:

  • Your child's birth certificate.
  • Your child's immunization records.
  • Proof of residency (in the form of a utility bill).
  • Any records from your child's previous school

What time does school start and end?

Both the elementary and junior high/high school begin at 7:55 AM and release at 3:37 PM.

What do I do if my child is late for school?

Tardies affect the entire class, so we appreciate all students who get to school on time. If your child must be late, we ask him or her to stop by their campus office and get a pass before heading to class.

My child must miss a day of school. How do I proceed?

If you know your child must be absent, please send a note to your child's teacher explaining the circumstances and date(s) of the absence. We will try our best to get any work together that your child might miss. If your child is sick, please call the office the morning of the absence, and let us know where your child is. Not only do we want to make sure your child is safe, we also want to mark your child as "excused." If we do not receive a call or note explaining the absence, we will record it as "unexcused." Please notify our school nurse if you suspect or your child has recently tested positive with COVID-19.

What do I need to do in order to withdraw my child from school?

Please let us know if your family will be moving. Your child will need to turn in any textbooks, library books, sports equipment, and/or computers he or she may have at home. You will also need to clear any debt you may have with our school (such as any outstanding meal charges)

Are cell phones allowed at school?

We know that many students have a cell phone. We ask that students keep their cell phones turned off and stored in their backpacks or locker during the school day. If we see a student using a cell phone during the school day, we will confiscate the phone. We also do not allow other types of devices at school, including hand-held game systems, mp3 devices, tablets, etc. Please note that we are no responsible for items student bring to school in the event they are lost or stolen.
